We worked on our shape of the month, "rectangle". All of the kids got a brown rectangle to look at and see what makes it a rectangle. Here is the song we sang:

(London Bridges)

Two sides long and two sides short
Two sides long, two sides short
Two sides long and two sides short
I'm a rectangle!!

We searched for rectangle shapes around the classroom and came up with some great ones! The kids found lots of different rectangle shapes: pictures on the cabinets, blocks on the wall, the USA flag, the light fixtures (I didn't even think of that one (: ) and more. Ask your child what some of the other shapes were.

We will be singing this song some more and would love if you would sing it with your child and see what they can find at home that is a rectangle.
